Clinical Competency Committee Collaborative Learning Community
Collaborative Learning Communities (CLCs) are defined groups with a commitment to shared goals, resources and responsibility and managed through collective authority and accountability.
This first CLC was created to optimize the process by which Clinical Competency Committees (CCC) report milestones. The mission of the collaborative was to develop efficient and effective ways to plan, lead, implement, and improve the CCCs in residency programs. It served as a laboratory in which members share successes and challenges, tested hypotheses, developed “out of the box” ideas for members, and learned from one another. The CLC reported its findings and recommendations to the AAIM Innovations Committee in July 2016.
- Applied process improvement to CCCs, i.e. SWOT analysis
- Increased resident engagement in their milestones assessment either before or during the CCC meeting
- Identified opportunities to enhance the effectiveness of milestones ratings scale and address areas of competency not included in the current framework
- Developed faculty development workshops for core faculty to improve their understanding of the assessment tools which provide data to CCCs.
